King John





WHAT WAS THE MAGNA CARTA?
T he Magna Carta, also called the Great Charter, was a very important document that was signed in the Middle Ages. King John of England was put under pressure to sign it in 1215 AD. The barons in England were rebelling against his rule and they wanted more rights.




B y signing this document, the King changed the monarchy’s powers. The document also changed the rights of the citizens of England as well as the amount of influence the members of Parliament had on the country.

K ing John was considered to be one of the worst Kings in history and his barons wanted to force him into following the law. The Magna Carta was eventually written into English law. The Magna Carta became a symbol of liberty. Its underlying philosophy was that everyone should follow the law, even those in positions of power or government leaders.




T oday, you can read the text of the Magna Carta online. Much of it has to do with the customs of feudal lands in Medieval Times, but its basic purpose shines through. The Magna Carta influenced several other important documents including the Declaration of Independence as well as the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights.
